“Oh, you again??”

“Oh, you again??”

Today’s visit to the Ridgefield NWR was awesome right off the bat, primarily due to this Bald Eagle being perched at the ‘vulture’ tree near marker #4.  This is as close to an eagle as I have been in many, many months at the refuge.  The bird gave me enough time to shoot 20 ‘portraits’ before flying off–away from me.  I liked this expression the best of all of them.  I spotted three other mature Bald Eagles during the day but they were much further away.
